The Pyro hits and Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole welcome us to Monday Night Raw. They immediately begin by reminding us of John Cena's victory against Brock Lesnar, and CM Punk's successful title defense against Chris Jericho. Triple H's music hits and he makes his way down to the ring. He's in a suit and tie to indicate it's all business tonight. He grabs a mic and says that Brock Lesnar is an asshole. He made demands last week which the WWE has no chance, and will not make true.
Triple H says that if WWE let Brock Lesnar take a private jet to every show, let Brock Lesnar take a limousine wherever he pleases, raise Brock Lesnar wages, then the WWE would be no more. Hunter says that changing the show name to Monday Night Raw: Starring Brock Lesnar is ludicrous. No man has ever been bigger than the WWE, and no man will ever be bigger than the WWE, and that includes Brock Lesnar,
John Laurinatis' music hits and he storms down to the ring to a chorus of boos. He demands a mic from the timekeeper, and is not even trying to look pleased. He enters the ring and says he couldn't agree with Triple H more. Laurinatis says that last week, he felt pressured into saying yes to the demands Brock made. He says that Brock Lesnar is an asskicking machine, yet John Cena was able to walk out of Extreme Rules, is a travesty. If Brock actually won the match, then he may have been able to overlook this. Laurinatis says that he wants Brock fired, and fired right...
Here Comes The Pain plays and Brock Lesnar makes his way down to the ring. He immediately gets in John Lauriantis' face, and says that he broke their promise. He says that if he wants John Cena that badly then he can hire another man to do the job. Lesnar pulls his arm back to swing, but Triple H pushes him away. Laurinatis and Hunter looks at each other, before at Lesnar. Brock holds his ground as the authority figures prepare to attack. Hunter makes the first move, and lays into Brock with punches, before Lesnar pushes him off into Laurinatis, who kicks Hunter low. Hunter falls down, which allows Brock then locks in the Kimura lock for a full minute, with HHH screaming in pain. Brock eventually breaks the hold, and smiles. Laurinatis raises Lesnar's arm to the disgust of the crowd, but their mood quickly lightens up, when Lesnar picks John up on his shoulders, and swiftly delivers an F5! Brock picks up the mic, and says that he's taking a vacation, before Raw goes to a commercial.
The Executive Administrator Eve comes down to the ring to massive heat. She says she is the most powerful person in the building, so with John Laurinatis recovering, she's controlling Monday Night Raw. She says in our main event, Lord Tensai, Chris Jericho, and Randy Orton, will face off in a triple threat match, with the winner facing CM Punk at Over the Limit. Cult of Personality plays, and CM Punk makes his way down to the ring. We are shown stills of the street fight versus Chris Jericho, as Punk smiles at the photo's. Cody Rhodes' music hits, and boos are heard throughout the arena. Again we are shown stills, but this time of Rhodes' victory over The Big Show, along with the post match attack.

Post Match Rhodes stood up in shock, and attempted to leave the ring, but Punk pulls him back, lifts him up, and hits a GTS, to the crowd's – and Justin Gabriel's delight.
The camera shows backstage, an empty corridor, when a man in street clothes suddenly runs past. The camera goes to where this mystery man once was, and reveals Tyson Kidd unconscious on the floor. The camera returns to Michael Cole and Josh Matthews, speculating who this attacker was. Lawler thinks that it was Chris Jericho, taking out his anger from last night, when Michael Cole thinks it could be Curt Hawkins, trying to get rehired for the WWE. Jack Swagger's music hits, and he comes down to ringside, with Dolph and Vickie in toe. They enter the ring, and Jack says that in the past 6 months, he's been United States Champion, and yet is still struggling to get on to a PPV appearance. He was beaten by that joke Santino Marella, and now he wants retribution. Jack says he's issuing an open challenge to the WWE roster. Anyone that wants a match on Raw, can come out and get one against the All American American. The three address the ramp, before Dolph Ziggler suddenly jumps on Swaggers back, and locks in the sleeper. Jack tries to muscle out of it, but Ziggler has it locked in firmly. Vickie screams at Dolph, as she is seeing her plan ripped to shreds. Swagger falls to the floor, and is unconscious when Ziggler finally releases the hold. Vickie slaps Ziggler, and asks what he's thinking, and Ziggler looks pissed. He's about to lay a hand on Ziggler, before being interrupted by Brodus Clay. Ziggler wastes no time in leaving, leading Brodus, Cameron, Naomi and Vickie checking on Swagger
Brodus is still in the ring, as he has a match next. Heath Slaters music hits and he runs into the ring as fast as he can.

A innocent backstage worker gets kicked for his troubles, as an evidently pissed Kane finally stops, as Sheamus approaches him. Sheamus says that Kane is angry and frustrated, and the Great White needs an opponent for tonight. Sheamus slaps Kane's chest, before walking away, and leaving Kane confused.
Primo, Epico and Rosa Mendes are backstage arguing. Epico says that she's not allowed to do that, when Primo says they have to focus on the job at hand. They all start bickering, before A.W enters the screen, and watches the arguments. Kofi Kingston's music hits, and he and R-Truth comes down to the ring. The announcers hype this being a Tag Team Championship match, that Eve made, as this is probably what was causing the arguments. The Colon's music hits, and they are still arguing, on the way down to the ring. The match is about to get under way, when the referee sends Rosa Mendes to the back!

John Cena comes down to the ring to a mixed reaction, and with his arm in a sling. He grabs a mic and says that he knows he said that he would take a vacation, but Eve wouldn't allow it. Obviously Johnny Ace has is still focused on making Cena's life miserable, so they are forcing him to compete at Over The Limit. John says that they obviously don't listen, as Cena has repeated over and over how much he loves this business, and how you would have to break both of his legs to keep him away. Eves music hits, and the Glamorous Diva appears on the ramp. She says that before tonight, John Laurinatis hand selected John Cena's next opponent, and he will be making John's life a misery. Cena says that is she sure about that, and Eve says that is she sure? Yes, Yes, YES. On this note, Daniel Bryan comes in from behind, and swiftly kicks Cena's injured arm over and over, before hitting a drop toe hold. He then rips the sling, and places John's bad arm between his legs, and locks in the YES! Lock, screaming Yes over and over again, Cena screams in pain, as we fade into a commercial
